Attitude or Gratitude?

Day 29 #blogyourbrand Attitude or Gratitude? attitude or gratitude Dear Monday, I woke up to the furnace not working this morning! It was 54 degrees in our house! Even the dogs didn't want to get out of bed! We live in Colorado and a snow storm is coming in. I went to get groceries and when I was bringing in the groceries, the front storm door handle broke off. I could see my phone on the counter and the keys still hanging in the front door. Basically, I was locked outside in the cold and I could not get into my car or house. Last month, our hybrid battery had to be replaced, and now this! I could choose to have an attitude, but instead, I am choosing gratitude. Why? It's because I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, and a warm bed to sleep in. I have learned over the years that something always breaks and needs to be replaced. It is just a part of life. Today, I am grateful that my neighbor was home and had tools to help me open my door. We found a large screwdriver and I got in after about an hour. I am thankful she was home and we could figure it out. This past year has been challenging on many levels. Some things have been way out of my control and I have had to trust God more than ever. There are so many of my friends that are sick or have personal things that are going on; things that are way worse than a new engine or a furnace going out. Even when you are going through the rough stuff, your attitude is everything. My great grandmother would tell us, "Get up and get showered, and then you will have a better attitude." I always think this when I am feeling "salty", as my children would say! Lol Where are you choosing gratitude over attitude in your life? I would love to hear about it! You never know who is listening, and you could encourage them through what they are going through. I am grateful to be a part of your lives, and to have you in mine! Thanks for stopping by! ~Holly <3
